Role Model

Saturday, October 01, 2011

I never pictured myself as a fitness role model. But my daughter who joined the gym last spring and only went 3-4 times a month, came to the gym with me a couple times this week. She met my trainer on Thurs night and will be coming with me and training with her once a month now.

My husband was very encouraging to me today (love you!) I was just going to go down to the basement and walk on the treadmill and he said "Why not go to the gym?" I thought we were going to clean out the garage, but he said he didn't need my help. So, I went to the gym and did a 2 hour workout -- 50 minutes weights and 70 minutes cardio. The last 20 minutes were tough but I kept saying "Lose Your Quit"! and I finished!!

While I have been sparking I was listening to Michelle Aguilar, Season 6 Biggest Loser winner. It was very inspiring.

    You know you're my role model, as well. You really inspire me to push alittle harder. Thanks for demonstrating consistency and personal discipline.

    Yes, you are a role model, especially to your children--no matter how old they are. I hope my children will begin to follow my lead soon, especially my oldest who I see so much of myself in.

    Thank you for the reminder and for serving as a role model to us here on Sparkpeople.

    One of the biggest joys I have of sharing God's great love in my life is by letting out through the way we are role models before others. You are a role model in so many fine and exceptional ways. Praise God!

They're paying even MORE attention! Cuz THEY are getting older too! And they're saying... "I wanna be like MOM when I get there!" You BET they are! Well... you ARE an emoticon Mom! ... and you HAVE an awesome hubby too!!! emoticon
